Stopping Car Rust & Drive in the Snow
Goodyear Brakes Guide Published
When rotating tires, many
people discover that due to
corrosion, the brakes and
braking components need
replacing before reaching their
Granular road salts or the popular liquid
brine solutions of calcium chloride or
magnesium chloride used on roads
deteriorate brakes. These ice-melting aids
wreak havoc on a car’s body, chassis,
suspension and brakes through damaging
rust and corrosion.
Corrosion can damage the
Braking System, impede brakes'
function, seizing emergency
brake cables, and preventing
normal, free movement of brake
parts such as calipers and pads.
Lubricate all moving brake
parts, such as the caliper
pins, with a high-temperature
ceramic or silicone brake
Many brake rotors and calipers from the
original equipment manufacturer (OEM) are
bare metal and are susceptible to corrosion.
That means not only is the service life
shortened, but if the vehicle features an
open wheel design, ugly rusty rotors and
calipers show through.
There’s a better solution. Goodyear
Brakes rotors and calipers are protected
against rust and corrosion with their
proprietary Antiox Max™ protective
coating, a critical protection needed for
driving in inclement weather and brine-
Just give a quick spray of
brake cleaner and a clean
shop towel to wipe the light
oil from the rotor or caliper.
It is also worth noting that the
entire Goodyear Brakes rotor,
including the braking surface, is
coated, but it will quickly wear in
during the brake pad bedding-in
Goodyear Brakes manufactures premium
quality brake kits, calipers, rotors, brake
pads and all the hardware required to
successfully install brakes, all backed by a
national warranty, decades of production
